Former President Barack Obamas ambassador to the United Nations has testified that others made so-called unmasking requests in her name, House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy said Tuesday.
Her testimony is they may be under my name, but I did not make those requests, Gowdy said of former Ambassador Samantha Power during an interview with Fox News Bret Baier on "Special Report with Bret Baier."
Power is among the Obama administration figures who made requests to identify Americans whose names surfaced in foreign intelligence reporting, known as unmasking.
Last month, Fox News reported that Power was unmasking at such a rapid pace in the final months of the Obama administration that she averaged more than one request for every working day in 2016 and even sought information in the days leading up to President Trumps inauguration.
"I think if she were on your show, she would say those requests to unmask may have been attributed to her, but they greatly exceed by an exponential factor the requests she actually made, Gowdy said. So, that's her testimony, and she was pretty emphatic in it...

Clearly the fact that someone was using Powers name suggests illegal or nefarious conduct. Im thinking it was Obama.
Using another’s authority HAS to be crime in itself.
Probably Susan Rice.
Samantha must have used John Podesta’s secret password. /s
How did these alleged “others” get her id credentials to do such a thing? Did the Obama administration have ANY security protocols in place?
Note how nothing ever gets traced back to her, yet she is the one who called all the shots
Her name is on each request. If she does not go to jail, Justice is not served
Susan Rice used her own name. Whoever did it did not have credentials but believed himself free to use Powers. Thats why I say Obama.
Liars lie...that is what they do. Nothing new here.
By the end of this, no one will have done anything.
“Clearly the fact that someone was using Powers name suggests illegal or nefarious conduct. Im thinking it was Obama. “
She probably used the ‘dog ate my homework’ excuse back in school.
“By the end of this, no one will have done anything.”
How true. If Mr. Gowdy and Speaker Ryan wanted to get to the bottom of this, they have the power to do so. Instead they continue to pontificate and do nothing. In doing so they enable the corruption and criminal behavior and are therefore accomplices.
I forgot his name.. Asswad?
Could he have done it?
Maybe a few more
At DIA it would have been Clapper and at CIA it would have been Brannen
In the FBI it could have been Comey, McCabe , Strzok or Bill Priestap
I think Rice ran her requests up so high she had to spread the load around to other zeroites.
“Probably Susan Rice.”
As National Security Advisor, Rice would have been even more authorized to unmask, and did. She may have wanted more credited to Power, and as former UN Ambassador would have known how to work around that system using POwer’s credentials.
Another possibility would be Valerie Jarrett. Not sure if her position afforded her the same level of security clearance the others had.
Send her to prison anyways. She’s as good a start as any of The Swamp.
From another article:
According to former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton, a Fox News contributor, if someone submitted unmasking requests in Powers name without her knowledge or consent, it would be potentially criminal.
